I need more ear training on notes and chords.

Don't start none...won't be none.
So, I wonder, would the time booting up and shutting down be less than, equal to, or exceed the amount of time these same employees surf or IM for non-work related reasons? I mean, I don't know for sure they do these activities, but my guess is that they do.Lawsuits over employees' unpaid computer boot-times stacking up next to unread paperwork

Frivolous lawsuits aren't anything new, but this is an eye-opener straight from annals of "office humor." It turns out that in the past year "several" companies, including UnitedHealthGroup, Cigna, and AT&T have had employee-filed lawsuits brought against them for unpaid time. That "unpaid time" is the minutes each day employees spend booting up and shutting down their computers (also their time-clocks), which they claim adds up to an astounding 15-30 per day. Astounding, that is, if you've never worked in a corporate office with a terrible IT department. If you have, you'll probably agree that this figure may, in some cases be on the mark, if not a little conservative. The employees claim they should be paid to work while the boot-ups and shut-downs are happening, since during that time they're doing tasks like paperwork or "arranging their calendar," while the companies counters that they're probably smoking, getting coffee, or talking to people. We're not really going to judge the veracity of these suits en masse -- we'll take them on a case-by-case basis, but there does seem to be something suspicious about this many people claiming to still use paper calendars.

MEXICO CITY ? Mexico City is giving out free Viagra and other impotence drugs to men 70 and older.
Mayor Marcelo Ebrard says the city is implementing the plan because sexuality "has a lot to do with quality of life and our happiness."
City Health Secretary Armando Ahued said Thursday that the government will start handing out doses of one or two Viagra, Levitra or Cialis pills on Dec. 1.
They will be distributed at three centers that specialize in sexual health for the elderly. The men will receive medical examinations before receiving the pills.
Ahued says an estimated 112,000 men 70 or older live in the Federal District, which has a population of 8.7 million.
Some 20 million people live in the greater Mexico City area.
Onward and Upward!
